15 Reasons For
HP Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews
We calculated the average reviews for all HP desktop computers and also specifically for HP few processor core PCs and found that in both cases HP had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This PC supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many recently released similar spec computers.
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The memory clock speeds supported by processors of new few processor core PCs range from 1,300MHz to 1,900MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,500MHz. The HP 550-230na has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor (1,866 megahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers that were released around the same time as the 550-230na.
Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The smallest max internal memory supported processor of similar spec computers that have been on the market for the last year is 4GB and the biggest is 64GB. At 64 gigabytes, the HP 550-230na has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the 550-230na.
Price Has Recently Dropped by £44.69
In the last few weeks the 550-230na has dropped in price by £44.69.
+10 More reasons for
Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the 550-230na has one of the bigger hard drive capacity amongst few processor core PCs of this age. Similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 550-230na have hard drive capacity of between 500GB and 2TB.
Alternative 1TB hard drive capacity personal computers currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper personal computers such as the Asus K31ADE (£319.97), the Acer Aspire XC-710 (£350.99), or the Lenovo Ideacentre 300 (£375.35).
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The total storage capacity of computers that came out around the same time as the 550-230na range from 16GB to 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB. The 550-230na has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other computers that were released around the same time as the 550-230na.
We compared all the other 1TB total storage capacity computers to this personal computer and we think the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£299.99), and the Lenovo Ideacentre 300 (£375.35) which is cheaper; or the Lenovo 510s (£379.95) which has better reviews are also worth considering.
Fairly Big Internal Memory
Across all the similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the 550-230na the internal memory range from 2GB to 8GB. With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the 550-230na has one of the bigger internal memory amongst few processor core PCs of this age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB memory computers currently available including the Acer Aspire XC-710 (£350.99) which is cheaper; or the Lenovo 510s (£379.95) which has better reviews.
Two HDMI Port
The HP 550-230na has more HDMI port than most of the few processor core PCs that have been around for the last year. This HP computer is a two HDMI port computer compared to most of the recently released computers which only have one HDMI port.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core PCs that are a similar age to it.
Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate
The HP 550-230na has one of the higher system bus data transfer rates (8 Gigatransfers per second) amongst personal computers of this age. The lowest system bus data transfer rate of few processor core PCs that came out in the last year is 5GT/s and the highest is 8GT/s.
DDR3L-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
The HP 550-230na has a newer internal memory type than most new few processor core PCs. This HP computer has a DDR3L-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most recently released few processor core PCs have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type. The best internal memory type of all few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the 550-230na is DDR4-SDRAM and the worst is DDR3-SDRAM.
Supports Five Compatible Memory Cards
The number of compatible memory card supported by the HP 550-230na is more than most latest few processor core PCs. This computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by recently released few processor core PCs. The compatible memory cards "MS PRO", "Memory Stick (MS)", "SDHC" and "SDXC" are also supported by this desktop computer.
5.1 Audio Output Channel
This desktop computer has a 5.1 audio output channel, which is the most commonly found audio output channel on computers that have been available for around the same time as it.
3 Other reasons to consider the HP 550-230na
Released Eleven Months Ago

Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.7 gigahertz, the 550-230na has a relatively average processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the 550-230na.
There are a number of alternative 3.7GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available that you might also want to look at including the Lenovo 510s (£379.95) which has better reviews.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.
